A trace is an instruction sequence which starts with any starting point and in which the program branches and their path selection are defined.

Such a trace enables the step-by-step tracing of the program sequence; it can be stopped after each program step and offers the possibility to check the contents of registers, program or data memory locations and to change them if necessary. The trace is primarily used for troubleshooting and error correction (debugging).
